Conforto (concussion) will be placed on the 7-day injured list Friday, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports reports.

Conforto was diagnosed with a concussion after colliding with Robinson Cano in the outfield during Thursday's game against the Nationals, so this move was to be expected. The 26-year-old has returned to New York and must fully clear the concussion protocol before being activated, so there's no guarantee he's ready to return after the seven-day minimum. Carlos Gomez had his contract selected from Triple-A Syracuse to bolster the Mets' outfield depth in his absence.
